Appetizer time! I love me some good appetizers, a little snackin before the main event, couldn't wait to see what this place had in store so I went with the Factory Nachos. I love nachos, a giant plate of nachos were placed in front of me and they looked delicious. Sadly.... they tasted like something I would make at 2 in the morning in the middle of a PS3 game. Shredded cheese on top of chips with chicken does not equal nachos. We need liquid cheese goin on, some spices, something! The chicken had no taste to it even though it seemed to have some seasoning all over it. Pretty much the worst nachos I have ever had in my life. They are a step above bowling alley nachos.
But whatever, it was time to try out the main course, I went with a hamburger, wasn't in the mood for a big fancy meal since it was just 1pm. So I went with the Smokehouse BBQ Burger, which our waiter told me, was his favorite thing on the menu, yeah, right. You have to be an idiot to love that bland burger. There was no taste to it. Nothing. The BBQ was awful, it had no taste to it, the burger itself had no kick or seasonings or spices added to the meat it seemed. It was a very bland crappy burger. I could have had a better burger off the value menu in a drive thru.
I know most people don't go to The Cheesecake Factory, a place that specializes in cheesecakes, for some nachos and burgers. But holy crap it was awful food. I even reached over and got a spoonful of my sons mac and cheese and even THAT was horrible. Powdery tasting cheese on noodles, blagh! On top of all the blandness, this place is way overpriced for the quality of their food. If you're gonna charge that much for a burger, I better be able to taste it. And smile and say, money well spent!
I MIGHT give this place another chance, but I won't be rushing back any time soon at all.
